From N68 per kilowatt-hour, Band A customers now pay N255/KWh, while others maintain the old tariffs.

 
The Eko Electricity Distribution Company has migrated 33 additional feeders to Band A under its franchise area.
 
EKEDC said it got the approval of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission before going ahead with the migration.
 
The feeders are Adeleke Adedoyin, Ajeast, Annex, Army Resettlement, British America Tobacco, CIG, Coker, Dideolu, Droyers, Empire Court, Estate, Etim Inyang, Firro, Freeman, Glover, Heritage, M&K Express, Mega Plaza, Montgomery 1, Moore Road, Nest Oil, NIMR, Nipost, Osborne, Ozumba Mbadiwe, Palace Road, Rocky Estate, Rumens, Smith, Station Feeder (Nitel), Victoria Arobieke, DPR andNitel.
 
The DisCo disclosed this Friday in a statement made available to our correspondent by the General Manager, Corporate Communications of EKEDC, Babatunde Lasaki.
 
PUNCH online reports that on April 3, the Federal Government, through the NERC, announced that subsidy would no longer be paid on the electricity consumed by Band A customers.
 
From N68 per kilowatt-hour, Band A customers now pay N255/KWh, while others maintain the old tariffs.
 
Lasaki said customers in these areas would experience “a guaranteed minimum of 20 hours of power supply daily in line with the newly approved Multi-Year Tariff Order”.
 
He assured customers within the EKEDC network of ongoing efforts to improve the quality of service rendered to them.
 
He said, “In our bid to serve our customers better, we are looking to even add more feeders to the list of our Band A feeders so that more customers can enjoy a guaranteed 20 hours of power supply daily.
 
“It is also our commitment to ensure that customers under other service bands, that is, Bands B to E also enjoy their guaranteed minimum supply hours while we work to improve our power supply”.
 
Lasaki added that EKEDC was working to eliminate supply downtime within its franchise area and achieve its goal of a stable and uninterruptible power supply.
 
He said, “The EKEDC is dedicated to investing more in infrastructural capacity to improve power supply and is working with all stakeholders to ensure a minimum of 20 hours of supply is available to all its customers”.
